So, the news has been out for a while, but made official by Toronto's reigning theatre family, the Mirvishes a couple of days ago. A brand spanking new (25th Anniversary) production is opening here in October.
Most importantly, they're opening with Ramin Karimloo as Valjean. I know the 25th production's been making the circuits for a couple of years now, but whenever they stage a brand new production - custom tailored for Toronto's Princess of Wales theatre as this one is - there's always some considerable tweaks, so it'll be interesting to see Ramin's Valjean in a slightly different production.
Also, I know there's been some buzz about it returning to Broadway - possible that the Toronto production will ship some folks/stuff over there for the rumored 2014 revival.
